An automated line assembly line was launched at the Aviastar-SP Ulyanovsk Aircraft Plant, which will significantly accelerate the production of Il-76MD-90A heavy military transport aircraft and its modifications. It is reported by RIA News with reference to a source in the aircraft industry.


In Ulyanovsk launched an automated assembly line IL-76MD-90A


According to the interlocutor of the agency, an automatic assembly line has been launched and the assembly of aircraft on new equipment has already begun.

Installation of the largest automated production assembly line in Russia for aircraft was started at Aviastar-SP in November last year. Two robotic stations were mounted at the enterprise, each of which automatically docked the fuselage, wing and tail sections, as well as six automated stations for installing systems, a power plant and workshop processing.

The advantage of using such technologies is that significantly reduces the time of operations on individual sections of the line. Accordingly, the time required for the complete assembly of the aircraft is reduced.

The final assembly line (...) consists of several stations providing complete assembly of the aircraft. One of the most important is the docking station for the fuselage compartments and the assembly of the airframe, which include stands of the Russian-made unstacked automated assembly. Automation reduces fuselage docking and glider assembly time. (...) will reduce the complexity of docking

- says the website of the Ilyushin Aviation Complex.

As previously reported, this year the Ulyanovsk aircraft manufacturers handed over to the Ministry of Defense two serial IL-76MD-90A after a four-year break, the third transport carrier undergoes a set of tests.

The press service of Ilyushin noted that it was planned to transfer five new military transport planes Il-2019MD-76А to the Ministry of Defense in 90. In total, the Russian military department plans to purchase up to 2030 of the year over 100 of these aircraft, as well as fuel tankers based on them.

The heavy military transport IL-76MD-90A is a profound modernization of the IL-76MD aircraft. The new IL-76MD-90A, unlike the drill IL-76MD, is equipped with PS-90A-76 engines with a thrust of up to 14,5 tons instead of the "standard" D-30KP2 with a thrust of up to 12 tons. At IL-76MD-90A, the carrying capacity increased to 60 tons and the range of delivery of troops and cargo - up to 5000 km.

          No.
          The full line will work only from 2020, and will give results with a time lag. That is, in 2020 and 2021 there will be the results of the past years, and the effect of the introduction will be at the end of 21 and 22.

          And it was the decision of the Moscow Region to get a failure in 17 and 18, but to keep the line in operation and to continue to be able to receive cars in the required counts.

          The average rate will be about 10-12 cars per year, with the possibility of production at maximum load, without expanding the lines, up to 15 cars per year (this information is unverified, from a series of guesses and OBS).

    Roughly speaking, in 10 years - 100 aircraft. 10 aircraft per year. So they are assembled manually with the same speed, without any "automated assembly lines". What is an automated assembly line for?

      As I understand it, these are mainly positioning stations. That is, earlier the wing was hung on cables, and gradually it was installed so that it could be connected. And now the microcontrollers will be adjusted without screaming and fingers up and down the marks. I would hesitate to call it "automated assembly lines", but specialists know better. Not small automation, but automated assembly lines! There is at least one nameplate in Russian, I wonder?

        Well, in 1913 was the best time in the Russian Empire, great for comparison. Unlike the Communists, Zaputinists compare their reality and their achievements with the black pit of the 90s. It is noteworthy that the devastation of the 90s also refers to the time of modern Russia, and not to the USSR. But it is not a hand to compare with the USSR, since any comparison will be a humiliation.

          For you, the USSR = RSFSR? But nothing that the country lost 25% of the territory and 40% of the population. Of these, a couple of tens of millions of Russian people, some made Ukrainians, even if they are from Ryazan in the first generation, and others Belarusians. The rest are scattered in other republics. And the same IL-76 was assembled in Tashkent by Russian specialists sent there to the Uzbeks to help. Tell me in the world 150 million a country that does everything at the level of the USA and the USSR, all types of transport, and not just near or far main, etc.? Maybe 150 million Brazil? Or is Pakistan? Japan? Indonesia? Or 80 million Germany and 60 million France for two rivets Airbus, though only in the far and middle segment. And then they have shaved with Italian on the grab. And their territories are compact.

    Complete nonsense. Automate assembly operations in the amount of 10 per year (assuming 10 airplanes are released per year that have not yet been achieved, and are unlikely to be achieved in this five-year period)) or once a month, on average, if necessary to install elements of a robotic complex to your position, adjustment, verification, etc., when manually it is done much faster .....
    Create manipulators, create a tool that the robot uses, write and debug a program ....
    Someone has gone crazy, either not educated in the pisarchuk technique, having unsuccessfully chosen the subject of description, or a manufacturer who dreams of writing off the stolen and reporting a stunning .....

    Automation gives positive results in large-scale and mass production. The aircraft industry does not apply to this.

    Well done, Ulyanovsk! good The news is good! The hull docking operation, even during the installation of ground engineering structures, is the most burdensome and nervous, very responsible and often takes more time than planned! yes
    And in aircraft and shipbuilding it is even more important to comply with the "building axis", therefore, this automation (and the progressive "technology of large-block assembly" itself) has a huge potential not only in aircraft construction - there is a big step forward! IMHO

I wonder what happens automatically there? Journalists immediately confuse aggregate and final assembly. But they have everything here in "automatic mode". As I understand it, this "automatic" assembly line has a couple of buttons labeled "dock units" and "perform final assembly" laughing

    Automated process - partially, without the presence of a person in assembly operations. Automatic - completely, in his absence. But this is not even possible to imagine. Not something to fulfill.

    What are you? It adapts not only to a specific type of aircraft, but also in a specific version. If the location of the same mounting holes is different, then the robot will not find them. And the assembly line, equipped with an image recognition system, so that it wouldn’t feel for a hole in the program, but would find it itself, would cost trilliards. If another element needs to be inserted into this hole, then the robot will do this!
    Machining centers with a couple of dozens of interchangeable tools take weeks to establish. You need to put the prepared tool in the desired cell, and it is in a special way. Further, the entire tool in test mode is adjusted to zero positions during installation. In order for the manipulator to grab it and set it strictly to the desired position, otherwise, the cutter will pass more or less the specified drawing. Further, the program takes into account the wear of the tool and adjusts its movement in the operation taking into account wear.
    If you knew what a tramp it is! And this is with the simultaneous assembly in the half year of 16 aircraft!
    Similar troubles, of course, are also at assembly. I am not familiar with SUCH lines, but look at the car assembly movie. And imagine what will happen in such a volume of premises. Where in the photo is something reminiscent of those mechanisms? There are stairs. But Fedor run on them, which are far from robots.

    In terms of quantitative production indicators, I can give a small
    help. Not so long ago, in the mid-80s, TAPOiCh produced
    at least 60 IL-76 aircraft of various modifications per year. A plus
    a considerable number of units and assemblies for repair and maintenance
    niya previously released cars. This is not gossip or rumor, but has long been known
    ny fact. Regarding the stupid passage from one of the participants
    discussion "Russian specialists on business were working there."
    The plant was evacuated from Moscow (Khimki) to Tashkent in the fall of 1941
    years for obvious reasons. Indeed, the factory worked
    many Russians, but many representatives of other nationalities
    - Tatars, Jews, Uzbeks, Armenians, Koreans and others. And not a team
    Dated, but quite a local.
